More Media Whoring

Media Matters:
Weekly Standard editor William Kristol lauded President George W. Bush's inauguration speech as "powerful," "impressive," and "historic," both in an article for the January 31 print edition of The Weekly Standard and as a FOX News political contributor during FOX's live coverage of Inauguration Day. Washington Post columnist and FOX News contributor Charles Krauthammer, also during FOX News' live Inauguration Day coverage, called Bush's speech "revolutionary" and compared it to former President John F. Kennedy's 1961 inaugural address. But Kristol and Krauthammer were consultants for Bush's speech -- a fact that neither disclosed.
And from The More Things Change Dept., we recall that in 1980, George Will helped prep Ronald Reagan for his debate with President Jimmy Carter and then (without disclosing that fact) praised Reagan to the skies on ABC afterwards.

P.S. Most scary overlooked sentence in Bush's psychotic spew: "America's vital interests and our deepest beliefs are now one."
